The 9th Annual Dulcimer Day in Duluth Folk Music Festival - The Spirit of Music - will be a day of great folk music fun on Saturday, May 1, 2010. Master dulcimer performers and folk instrument players and instructors from around the U.S. will teach and perform in Duluth. You will have the unique opportunity to listen to the sweet sounds of the dulcimers and take beginner or advanced classes on mountain and hammered dulcimer, as well as autoharp, bowed psaltry, clawhammer banjo and song circles. You can also jam with fellow musicians and come to a singalong. Two hands-on craft workshops will be offered: 1) to build and play a flute (made from PVC pipe) and 2) Dye a Silk Scarf. People of all ages from throughout the Upper Midwest will gather for the joy of folk instruments right here in Duluth. This event is Minnesota's only dulcimer festival.
